More on Alvatore & Others

(Not so new) Information on Alvatore, Alvaroon and Nadleeh translated from the official site by Gunota Headlines:

GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh


Head height: 18.1 m
Base weight: 54.0 t
Pilot: Tieria Erde
Armament: GN cannon, GN beam saber, GN beam rifle, GN sword
"One of Celestial Being's Gundams. A unit concealed inside the GN-005 Gundam Virtue, its existence is unique among the Gundams. The unit's greatest feature is the Trial System. This function can control all the machines linked with Veda. It's one of the guard systems protecting against the collapse of the plans made by the organization's founder, Aeolia Schenberg, who hid other similar such systems within his many plans. The Trial System's primary targets are Gundams and it creates an overwhelming dominance against them in battle. However, its effect range is restricted to a small area. During planning, it seems there was equipment to expand the Trial System but it's unknown if it was actually manufactured. The long, red cords on the head are used to supply GN particles to entirety of the Virtue's armor."



Overall length: 56.1 m
Overall width: 37.9 m
Overall height: 42.6 m
"An enormous weapon used in the UN Forces' final battle against Celestial Being. It's equipped with 7 pseudo-solar furnaces. With a gigantic beam cannon capable of firing extremely long distances, a strong GN Field, as well as other weaponry, it boasts the overwhelming power of past solar furnace-equipped units. Its armament also includes large, melee combat-use arms and midrange combat-use Fangs."



Head height: 17.6 m
Base weight: 69.2 t
Pilot: Alejandro Corner
"A pseudo-solar furnace equipped mobile suit stored inside the Alvatore. In reality, the Alvatore is only an enhancement for this unit, its true form. The wing portions can function as large beam cannons that make extremely long distance attacks. The pilot is one of Celestial Being's observers, Alejandro Corner, who betrayed his organization and gave pseudo-solar furnaces to the UN."

On the other hand, a little update on HG 1/144 Tieren Space Type Commander Unit ^^;

Differences with the original Tieren Space Type include the head, shoulder shields and heels.

Tieren sure is the grunt unit with the most variations released from thsi series.
The last one on hold is Sergei's High Mobility Type used in Episode 3.

I wonder if this Tieren is in Bandai's plan for future release as well?
